Hikvision on Cyberattacks, Backdoor Exploits, and Hacks
Canadian Security magazine provides an extensive cybersecurity checklist with tips to prevent hacks, security breach and cyberattacks in this article, “Your cybersecurity checklist: Best practices to implement.”
“While no company or individual can be 100 percent protected from cybersecurity threats, you can implement security best practices within a cybersecurity audit checklist, which can significantly reduce the risk of you becoming a victim of hackers or employee mishap,” said the article.
Tips from the article include:
- Update your operating system by enabling automatic updates.
- Create a complex password with a minimum of eight characters, and mix it up—include “a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters.”
- Educate employees on cyberattacks such as phishing and ransomware.
- Provide email awareness training so personnel won’t click on suspicious links or attachments. “If there are any questions about a link in an email, it is better to go to the website directly by typing the address into a browser than to risk clicking on the link,” said the article.
